Description: The BAE Systems RG33 is a family of mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles features a monocoque V-shaped hull providing outstanding protection against improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The RG 33 is heavily influenced by the experience gained during 20th and early 21st centuries asymmetrical conflicts confronting military forces with insurgents. The vehicle family can be airlifted suing C-130-sized aircraft. Its standard equipment includes hydraulic ramp, a gunner's protection kit, a robotic arm, on-board exportable power supply for C4I systems, survivability gear, mine protected seating, air conditioning, and dedicated space for equipment stowage. Besides, RG33s are remote weapon capable and network enabled. BAE Systems unveiled the first RG33, an RG33L, vehicle at AUSA 2006.

The RG-33 may be equipped with modular add on armor kits, TRAPP transparent armor that provides excellent visibility and situational awareness, and run-flat tires. The levels of protection of the RG33 vehicle depends on the armor package but the basic model offers small and medium caliber firearms and mine blast protection. BAE Systems has designed the RG33 platform to serve as Infantry Carrier, Ambulance, Command and Control, Convoy Escort, Explosive Ordnance Disposal vehicle, etc. To date, the RG-33 vehicle family includes the RG-33 6x6 or RG-33L, the RG-33 4x4, Medium Mine Protected Vehicle (MMPV) 6x6, and Mine Resistant Recovery and Maintenance Vehicle (MRRMV) 6x6 variants.

The US Army Medium Mine Protected Vehicle (MMPV) is a 6x6, multi-purpose, mine protected vehicle derived from the BAE Systems RG33 MRAP vehicle. The MMPV is used by the US Army's Engineers to conduct route and area clearance missions, command and control, mount mine clearing systems, and conduct explosive hazards reconnaissance. The US Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams will use these vehicles to neutralize Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), mines and other unexploded ordnance.

The US Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command selected BAE Systems as the sole producer for the MMPV program on December 19, 2007. The initial contract, valued at $20 million, covers the production of nine MMPV test vehicles, associated equipment and services to be delivered between May and August 2008. BAE Systems and the Letterkenny Army Depot will perform automotive and final assembly production operations in Pennsylvania. The MMPV program calls for the production of up to 2,500 vehicles worth $2.28 billion through 2015.
